More information

This theme is meant to encourage the authors not only to write (and read) between the lines but also to confront themselves with the different forms and motives of silence. Although literature needs the written or rather the spoken word it can adress and reflect silence, make its protagonists remain silent, silently withhold themes, use silence as stylistic device and even go beyond all that: Because even if silence is a nonverbal form of communication, it is always a part of the communication that enables informations, opinions and meanings to be shown.

„Silence“ is a very wide ranging topic and should motivate the authors to deal with it freely, to let their own associations, descriptions, experiences, thoughts melt into their literary texts. Silence within art, especially within literature should be dealt with in articles and essays from the point of view of literary studies.
